Hello designers! :)

I'm doing a quick survey to learn more about the graphic design industry from your side of things:
  1. How old are you?
  2. Genre?
  3. Do you have a degree in design? Or are you currently pursuing a degree?
  4. What is your favorite type of work/gig? Why?
  5. What is the most boring/cumbersome type of work/gig for you? Why?
  6. What is the most difficult part of the business for you? Why?
  7. What is your desired (ideal) result?
  8. What concerns do you have for your future (career wise)?
  9. Anything else you want to add.
I'm really curious to see everyone's answer! And I hope it will be fun for other people on the forum to see each others answers as well.

You can also pm me the answers if you do not want to share your answers publicly (the information will never be shared with anyone).

You can of course skip any questions you do not wish to answer, simply write a * next to the number.
Really, thank you in advance!

Well I'm not going to answer because I have no context as to WHY you want the information... I don't like giving 'personal' information to random strangers in all honesty.

PS... I know this is a question for an educational institute... we don't like that fact being hidden either.

I should have clarified that! I am a student, correct. But it's just a curiosity, I collect data and compare it to similar industries. I thought it could be fun for your community to see what other members think as well (hence the public post).
